Vale Ian Purcell AM

1947 – 2016

Ian Purcell

We honour Ian Purcell AM who dedicated his life to advancing the health and rights of LGBTIQA+ South Australians over may decades of activism.

Fondly known as the “Godfather of the Gay Community”, Ian was the first Chairperson of the SA Rainbow Advocacy Alliance.

He was founding member of the Uranian Society, a cultural forum for gay men, and the Gay and Lesbian Community Action lobby group, which was formed to counter political and social conservatism at the height of the AIDS epidemic.

He also represented the LGBTIQ+ community on various state government departmental committees, including the Ministerial Advisory Council on Gay and Lesbian Health and the SA Police Gay and Lesbian Liaison Committee.

In 2005 Ian Purcell became a Member of the Order of Australia for his advocacy.

His wisdom and humanity will be much missed.

We owe so much to Ian and we hope to honour him by continuing his work.
